LIGNIA Wood Company, the award-winning modified timber business based in Barry, has signed a distribution agreement with Australian timber experts Hurford Wholesale, who will be distributing LIGNIA products to the Australian and New Zealand markets.
Hurfords was established in 1932 and is a leading Australian third-generation family business dedicated to the native hardwood timber industry. With its HQ in Stapylton in Queensland, it covers the entire supply chain from the management and harvesting of forest resources, processing, manufacturing, sales, and distribution of wood products in Australia and around the world.
LIGNIA Wood Company produces modified timber at its base in Barry, Wales. It uses real softwood from responsibly sourced FSC® certified plantations which is then modified through a unique process. This gives LIGNIA the beauty, performance and appearance of popular hardwoods.
